Ingredients
Grilled Vegetables
  • 1 Tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil, plus more if needed
  • 2 large zucchini, sliced lengthwise
  • 1 large head cauliflower, sliced into thick 1 inch “steaks” or 1 inch pieces
  • 2 large bell peppers, or 6 mini bell peppers
  • 1 head Bibb lettuce leaves removed
  • Sea salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste
Avocado Sauce
Instructions
Grilled Vegetables
  1. Slice the vegetables lengthwise into 1/4 inch thickness and brush both sides of the vegetables with extra-virgin olive oil. Sprinkle with sea salt and peppe. Set aside for 5 minutes to let the oil and sea salt soak into the vegetables.

  2. Preheat your grill to medium heat. Use avocado oil or extra-virgin olive oil to brush or spray the grill grates. When the grill is nice and hot, add the vegetables in a single layer and close the grill. Grill the vegetables on each side for about 4-5 minutes or until golden brown and grill marks appear.

  3. Meanwhile, as the vegetables are on the grill, make the Avocado Sauce (recipe below).

  4. When the grilled vegetables are done, transfer them to a large serving platter and sprinkle sea salt and pepper, to taste. Serve the vegetables warm with the head of Bibb lettuce on the side. Use the cavity of the lettuce leaves to make lettuce wraps by wrapping the grilled veggies and serving with a dollop of the avocado sauce on top.

Avocado Sauce
  1. Combine all the ingredients in a blender and purée until very smooth. Transfer to a serving bowl and serve as a sauce or a dip with the roasted vegetables. Store leftover sauce in the fridge in a sealed container for up to 2 days.
